Unity NSD weekend

I hope everybody had a little piece of time to enjoy National Scrapbook Day this weekend. I decided to play along with Unity Stamp Company on Saturday while my husband and son were out enjoying the beautiful weather. I took part in the festivities over at My Unity Place and I also decided I wanted to try my hand at the challenge on the Unity Blog. Did you see the prize??? $200 in Unity red rubber gloriousness!! I don't think I've seen another company as generous as this! To play along they asked us to make an 8x8 kraft base recipe card, easy enough I think. So here is what I came up with this evening...

 The recipe for this super yummy strawberry margarita pie tucks in that little pocket I made by folding my paper over.

I stamped and heat embossed that lovely frame around my picture to showcase all that
yumminess :) All of my dp is from October Afternoon and my letter stickers are from Echo Park.



Oh how I hope I win this challenge! I could put that $200 to really good use! I do love my Unity!!!
Now here is the LO that I made for one of the four challenges over at My Unity Place.

I don't have a copy of the picture that I want to go on this LO yet. I need to get it from my Grandma. It is a black and white photo of my grandparents on their wedding day in front of my great-grandparents house. In the pocket will be a copy of the letter that my Grandpa proposed to my Grandma in while he was serving overseas in the Korean War. I am so blessed to have such a treasure and awesome piece of our family history!!

That fabulous silhouette was cut on my Silhouette digital cutting machine and all the stamps on this LO are from, you guessed it, Unity Stamp Co. I LOVE how this turned out! My grandfather died 10 years ago last saturday and that was the prompt for me to do this LO even though I don't have a copy of the picture yet.

Alright this post is getting LONG again, sorry! So I will leave you with a picture of my oldest son who snuck out of bed tonight and was spying on us and fell asleep on the stairway. I can't tell you how many pictures we have of me as a kid sleeping in odd places :) PRECIOUS is the only thing I can say out him!
